The seventh new councillor, Martin Swinbank, was unable to attend the training evening.
Following the town and parish council elections at the start of May, Alnwick Town Council only had 11 elected members from a full complement of 18 and decided to co-opt to fill the vacancies.
The next meeting of the town council takes place on Thursday, June 11, at 7pm in Alnwick Council Chamber.
